DIMAPUR, APR 9 (NPN) | Publish Date: 4/9/2020 12:38:24 PM IST

Naga Hoho (NH) has lamented that people from the Northeast region were subjected to “aggressive racist profiling, slurs, attacks and discrimination” in the cities during a nationwide lockdown even as the world was combating COVID-19 pandemic.

In a press release, NH general secretary, K Elu Ndang, appealed to the chief ministers and MPs of Northeast states to reach out to the prime minister and urge for the safety and security of the people living in different cities.

Stating that there were cases reported from many places while most of the cases go unreported, NH said “many suffer such indignity silently.”

The hoho asserted that associating a pandemic to a race was “unacceptable” though racism was not new.

Further, pointing out that India was a signatory to the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, the NH said India should have anti-racial law in place.

NH affirmed that no one, even if they were not Indians or were from India, should face racism in the country.
